Hmmm, not sharing knowledge isn't confined to academics then!

I said i will, when me little old legs are done, i haven't finished by a long shot yet. [ i said 38 but i had to ask my missus as i feel younger- doesn't time fly when you start getting older?]

What are thee finds ?

A fully intact little flint hand axe [ knapped and polished], parts of axes, spear points, various blades, scrapers, arrowheads and even a flint spoon from norfolk plus loads of different flint tools plus a couple of really old [mesolithic] flint axes and some microliths and lots of bits of beakers, mainly from lincolnshire, norfolk and cornwall, the flint does stand out more here in cornwall because its against the granite. That's why it was always strange finding it in lincolnshire and norfolk, i was never looking, i couldn't see knapped flint in a field full of flint, we was been shown where the settlements were, as they have mostly been [in lincolnshire and norfolk] ploughed out by 4500 years of farming, we would find ourselves in a field somewhere and get a feeling we had been taken to an old settlement and bang we'd stoop down and pick up clearly worked lovely flint pieces [ i know plough damaged flint ], yes we'd found somewhere, it has always happened like that, it's how i've learned about loads of long gone places.

Could you show us some pics ?

Field walking often produces exactly these types of artefacts on a regular basis . Those who do so never suggest the result of their finding the material is anything other than being in the right place and having a good eye and would laugh at anything mystical be being the cause of their finds .

I don't think they find all this without even looking, we are taken to it, the fact you can't get your head round it doesn't make it not true [here we go again!!!]. field walkers look at the ground , i look at the landscape, i only look at the floor sometimes to make sure i don't fall over.
